There is a refundable GB£1500.00 Security Deposit payable by credit card or debit card. The card should be in the lead driver’s name and the amount will be debited from your account immediately. Pre-paid currency cards cannot be accepted. FS Motorhomes reserves the right to increase the Security Deposit in certain circumstances or for specific events e.g. World Cup events, Festivals, clients traveling with pets, for any other hire where the Motorhome is carrying 4 or more adults, and if the Security Deposit is paid in cash to GB£2000.00. Cheque payments are not accepted against the Security Deposit.
a) On taking delivery of the Vehicle, you agree to pay the Security Deposit
b) You irrevocably authorize FS Motorhomes to deduct from the Security Deposit any amounts due by you to FS Motorhomes arising out of This Agreement
c) In the event that FS Motorhomes elects to accept payment of the Security Deposit by holding an open security payment; a pre-authorization for the full security amount will be processed and authorized by the Customer either by entering their card details and submitting them through our online self-check-in system or by inputting their card into our card terminal and entering their pin number.
d) The Security Deposit will be refunded within 7 working days or the open security payment will be automatically released by our bank once the Vehicle has been returned to the depot as per the criteria set out in section 13, Motorhome collection and return, and as long as there are no outstanding insurance claims. It will not be refunded on the return of the motorhome. If it was paid for in cash, this will be refunded by bank transfer.
e) Should any damages or costs exceed the Security Deposit the Customer will be responsible to settle all additional costs over and above the Security Deposit value within 7 days of being notified of the cost.
Note: Where the hirer has opted for the CDW option and has complied with its terms stated below (clause 29), no excess will be charged in the event of a road traffic accident (RTA) or collision, but they should be aware that the Security Deposit will be used to fund any loss or damage what so ever to equipment, fixtures, and fittings, windows, valeting or upholstery fees, refueling costs or negligent damage to the Vehicle. Should these damages exceed the Security Deposit held, the Customer will be liable for the total cost, and the difference will need to be settled within 7 days of returning the motorhome.
